  • I'm almost positive that it's "California Here I Come". I could think of a porno title based on those words but our drought-striken, on-fire, broke state already has enough trouble. ;)

  • Official Song of the State of Tennessee Tennessee Written by Vivian Rorie I do not know of another state Where I had rather be Than this great state I'm living in And that is Tennessee. I love the stars dearly And there are surely three That show the Grand Division Of my home-land, Tennessee. Where could you find a meadow With grass so vividly green? Where could you find the mountains With such majestic scene? You will never find so bright a moon To shine down from above You will also see the robin The wren, and the turtle dove. And don't forget the rivers Where visitors long to stay. And many have voice in parting, 'I'm sure glad I passed this way.' You will see the cattle grazing Beside a cotton field; And there's the Grand Ole Opry And a feeling it's all God's will. I have lived here all my life It's where I'm going to be Although I've traveled quite a bit, I'll still take Tennessee! Oh, I sure love the state I'm in: The great state of Tennessee!" And, here's another song about Tennessee - Nora Jones sings this beautifully! Nora Jones - Tennessee Waltz
  • Arizona Written by Margaret Rowe Clifford in 1915 Come to this land of sunshine To this land where life is young. Where the wide, wide world is waiting, The songs that will now be sung. Where the golden sun is flaming Into warm, white shining day, And the sons of men are blazing Their priceless right of way. Chorus Sing the song that's in your hearts Sing of the great Southwest, Thank God, for Arizona In splendid sunshine dressed. For thy beauty and thy grandeur, For thy regal robes so sheen We hail thee Arizona Our Goddess and our queen. Come stand beside the rivers Within our valley broad. Stand here with heads uncovered, In the presence of our God! While all around, about us The brave, unconquered band, As guardians and landmarks The giant mountains stand. (Chorus) Not alone for gold and silver Is Arizona great. But with graves of heroes sleeping, All the land is consecrate! O, come and live beside us However far ye roam Come and help us build up temples And name those temples "home." (Chorus)
  • All Hail To Massachusetts Written by Arthur J. Marsh All hail to Massachusetts, the land of the free and the brave! For Bunker Hill and Charlestown, and flag we love to wave; For Lexington and Concord, and the shot heard 'round the world; All hail to Massachusetts, we'll keep her flag unfurled. She stands upright for freedom's light that shines from sea to sea; All hail to Massachusetts! Our country 'tis of thee! All hail to grand old Bay State, the home of the bean and the cod, Where pilgrims found a landing and gave their thanks to God. A land of opportunity in the good old U.S.A. Where men live long and prosper, and people come to stay. Don't sell her short but learn to court her industry and stride; All hail to grand old Bay State! The land of pilgrim's pride! All hail to Massachusetts, renowned in the Hall of Fame! How proudly wave her banners emblazoned with her name! In unity and brotherhood, sons and daughters go hand in hand; All hail to Massachusetts, there is no finer land! It's M-A-S-S-A-C-H-U-S-E-T-T-S. All hail to Massachusetts! All hail! All hail! All hail! This SHOULD be the song...

  • Give Me Louisiana Written by Doralice Fontane Composed by Dr. John Croom Give me Louisiana, The state where I was born The state of snowy cotton, The best I've ever known; A state of sweet magnolias, And Creole melodies Oh give me Louisiana, The state where I was born Oh what sweet old memories The mossy old oaks bring It brings us the story of our Evangeline A state of old tradition, of old plantation days Makes good old Louisiana The sweetest of all states. Give me Louisiana, A state prepared to share That good old southern custom, Hospitality so rare; A state of fruit and flowers, Of sunshine and spring showers Oh give me Louisiana, The state where I was born Its woodlands, Its marshes Where humble trappers live Its rivers, Its valleys, A place to always give A state where work is pleasure, With blessings in full measure Makes good old Louisiana The dearest of all states. Give me Louisiana, Where love birds always sing In shady lanes or pastures, The cowbells softly ring; The softness of the sunset Brings peace and blissful rest Oh give me Louisiana, The state where I was born The smell of sweet clover Which blossoms everywhere The fresh new mown hay Where children romp and play A state of love and laughter, A state for all here after Makes good old Louisiana The grandest of all states.
  • (a) The state song is "Texas, Our Texas" by William J. Marsh and Gladys Yoakum Wright: Texas, Our Texas! all hail the mighty State! Texas, Our Texas! so wonderful so great! Boldest and grandest, withstanding ev'ry test O Empire wide and glorious, you stand supremely blest. (chorus) Texas, O Texas! your freeborn single star, Sends out its radiance to nations near and far, Emblem of Freedom! it set our hearts aglow, With thoughts of San Jacinto and glorious Alamo. (chorus) Texas, dear Texas! from tyrant grip now free, Shines forth in splendor, your star of destiny! Mother of heroes, we come your children true, Proclaiming our allegiance, our faith, our love for you. Chorus God bless you Texas! And keep you brave and strong, That you may grow in power and worth, throughout the ages long. God bless you Texas! And keep you brave and strong, That you may grow in power and worth, throughout the ages long. (b) During the rendition of the state song when the state flag is displayed, all individuals present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the state flag with the right hand over the heart. Those present in uniform should render the military salute at the first note of the state song and retain this position until the last note. When not in uniform, individuals who are wearing a headdress that is easily removeable should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, with the hand over the heart. Individuals who are not citizens of this state should stand at attention. (c) When the state flag is not displayed, those present should face toward the music and act in the same manner as they would if the state flag were displayed there. (d) The state song should be rendered after the national anthem if both are rendered.

  • Carry Me back to Old Virginny Written by James Bland Carry me back to old Virginny. (Original version.) There's where the cotton and corn and taters grow. There's where the birds warble sweet in the spring-time. There's where this old darkey's heart am long'd to go. There's where I labored so hard for old Massa, Day after day in the field of yellow corn; No place on earth do I love more sincerely Than old Virginny, the state where I was born. Carry me back to old Virginny. There's where the cotton and the corn and taters grow; There's where the birds warble sweet in the spring-time. There's where this old darkey's heart am long'd to go. Carry me back to old Virginny, There let me live till I wither and decay. Long by the old Dismal Swamp have I wandered, There's where this old darkey's life will pass away. Massa and Missis have long since gone before me, Soon we will meet on that bright and golden shore. There we'll be happy and free from all sorrow, There's where we'll meet and we'll never part no more. Carry me back to old Virginny. There's where the cotton and the corn and taters grow; There's where the birds warble sweet in the spring-time. There's where this old darkey's heart am long'd to go. NOTE: Oh yeah, there has been some controversy over this. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carry_Me_Back_to_Old_Virginny
